The agenda for day 2 was to catch a glimpse of the sunrise. We woke up early in the morning (at 4am) & headed straight to the sunrise point. On the previous evening we got our ride for exploring the island.
The ride was a basic bicycle. The best decision ever. More on this on later.
The route to sunrise point was mesmerizing. It was filled with coconut trees on one side & the vast scenic ocean on the other side. Indeed a refreshing slow ride. On this trip, I had decided to include atleast one endurance activity per day so that the body is kept in check while the soul heals.
On reaching the spot, I settled myself in the perfect slot for the sunrise by the shore. Looking at the sun rise slowly through the clouds, I started to seek some creative thoughts to pen. The vast blue ocean promptly responded
So here it goes...
"On the sea shore,
Whilst on a nostalgic walk down the memory lane,
My mind wandered, contemplating on the philosophy of time
As I walked, the gleaming waves returning back home, gently slid through my feet
bringing me back to the present.
I allowed my mind to rest for a while...
Just for a little while.
Like a comma, taking a pause mid-way through the sentence 😛
But like always my monkey mind went on a wanderlust spree yet again.
This time, wandering through the infinite ocean, seeking some creative thoughts to pen.
Some big magic to spell😍
As the evening set in, calmness ensued
The tranquil blue ocean opened the door to answer,
Look up it said,
gaze at the imperfectly perfect twilight,
Consume the beauty of imperfection. For it is real.
It is then I concurred,
The magic had already begun
The words were already penned
& The present is the only real present
Ahh the philosophy of time
So complex yet so simple."
The rest of the day was spent relaxing on the beach, doing absolutely nothing.
